Williams Family Education Fund

Our beloved brother, devoted husband, beautiful son, committed coworker, lifelong friend and loyal father, Dan Williams, passed away unexpectedly 14 January 2018 leaving behind a beautiful wife Daniela and four gorgeous children Devyn, Daniel, Presley, and Sophia.  Words cannot express the heavy hearts, unbelievable pain, and excruciating grief that we now feel.  The world lost someone special; anyone who ever met Dan felt a connection to his charisma and joie de vivre (joy of life).

Although born in New Jersey, Dan spent the past 30 years as a resident of Connecticut where he graduated from Cheshire High, and eventually received degrees from Albertus Magnus College and Post University.  When not at work, you could find him shuffling the kids to various dance, basketball, karate lessons, usually with a Dunkin Donuts in hand, and a car magazine in the other.

The outpouring of love and support has been overwhelming. And many have asked how they can help. The best way we could think of was to set up a fund to support the education and extracurricular activities of his four wonderful kids.  My wife Elliza and I are kicking it off with a $10,000 initial contribution.

Dan never let me down and was generous beyond belief with his time and energy.  He proudly assumed responsibility for the care and support of his large family as Head of Household.  Let's now band together as a community to assure that his legacy is protected and his children can develop into amazing adults to make a dent on the world.
